Nemo Blank's Retrograde Girl is a somewhat alternate-universe story that deviates from regular continuity between "Dye, Dye My Darling" and Is It Fall Yet? Daria and Jane are still at odds over Tom going into their senior year. Tom is away to college, leaving Daria mostly alone in Lawndale. While walking home from the mall, Daria is struck by a drunk driver and in the aftermath, develops retrograde amnesia. Due to Jake and Helen's busy schedule, Quinn is left to help Daria to recover after the accident.
